Can you tell me where to uncheck that option? Is it in the Wizard or in the program itself?

What's the specs of the rig you're running it on? The one in your sig?
The RAM is different . .

Thread: HTPC

Any other background tasks going on involving the hard drive? My HTPC has a C2D E7400, 4GB ram, integrated geforce 9400, etc and I have no staggering. My only problem is the loss of focus bug. I find it's the worst right when you start up mediaBrowser. If you wait 30s after starting it and then try to enter movies or TV Shows it seems to work a lot more.

The reason I love using W7MC (with media browser) is it's just that much more integrated into windows. I don't need to use a program like eventGhost to remap remote keys to program functions. It all just works (with a logitech Harmony One remote).
There are no other background apps minus Microsoft Security Essentials.

I like the integration of WMC too. With XBMC, I am using IR Media Suite and it works pretty good for the most part.

One thing that is a little disappointing about all of these media center apps is that none are anywhere close to perfect. I guess I'm being way too picky though lol.
